They actually thanked us at the wedding and several folks that attended both told us our food was better.
Thanks to all for the compliments - we are glad it is over and done

Thanks to all of you - you have no idea how much this means coming from the best on this board. We have been playing in the catering gig mostly for free for the last 20 years. To get these acolades from folks as respected on this forum as you is a true honor.
Thanks for your support and if there is anything we did can help you with any of our ideas please let me know.

Those ramakins are really hard to find - there is a small vendor in Hemet CA that sells them and they have really good customer service - let me know if you need the link

The ice bowl is so easy it is embarrasing - here is a pic of making it - just make sure you use distilled water so it freezes clear. When you are ready to put it out you need about 40 minutes to let it melt a little so the plastic bowls seperate without having to force them. It will break on you if you force it. I have a large collander with a foot so I flip it over and cover with leaves to give it height - if you really want to blow them away, put a couple of chunks of dry ice under the collander and pour some warm water on the dry ice - it makes it look like a volcano!!
